    Is there any headroom left in todays CPUs to make use of the 18+2 phase, 90a power stages?

    Not really. Even under phase change cooling Ryzen tops at about 5.2GHz on the Dark Power Hero so little if any benefit other than a few Mhz for WR attempts

    Even with normal B450 you can reach the limit of the CPU H24D7...
    But the motherboard doesn't last too long, so i would say it is still usefull despite being useless in a way.
    (what bother me more is that it is Asus... They are clearly not good on AM4 board and on X570 in particular)

    Asus Dark Hero is one of the best performing x570 MB out there with the best bios team. Prove me wrong ;)
    Extreme has a few more features, and are aimed for people like @chispy ;)

    This is my Timespy cpu score with 5950x on 30c water on Dark Hero, if you want to compare the cpuscore with other motherboards ;)
    CPU Score 18 729

    But prime series are catastrophic (the entry level from Asrock are more stable and have more option for 50% of the price)
    The TUF perform worse than Gigabyte, MSI and Asrock... (the B550 let me without voice when i bench it)
    Of course some ROG might be OK...
    But there is a huge gap in quality from what they do with Intel and what they do on AMD.

    But but but... There are good and bad/cheap boards from every vendor :)
    The most important factor for Ryzen cpu's has been bios support. Gigabutt has been the worst, and Asus the best :)

    I only get ASUS motherboards now, tried Gigabyte, tried MSI.

    Gigabyte - had one with VRM die and the 9900FX was great but then when Gagbyte releases new revisions BIOSES the older revision boards get forgotten about and they can have like 4 revisions per board let alone the family.

    MSI - boards are either very good or the worst of anything on the market, very inconsistent.

    ASUS - Are generally very good and their BIOSes are much better than anything i have used on the market and have been consistent for over 30 years.

    ASROCK - not used any yet but they are part of ASUS or i guess they should be ok but have seen mixed reports

    eVGA - motherboards don't exist outside the US Market and as far as i am concerned don't exist, i have had a eVGA graphics card and support was none existent had to buy a competitors card so maybe it's better since the GTX260 days but back then they were the worst of any GPU manufacture i ever had the misfortune in getting and have never bought anything from eVGA since and unlikely to do so for the rest of my life.

    Of course, i don't buy budget boards only upper high-mid to high tier boards so when an OEM has bad motherboards in that market i hate to think what their budget things are like.

    On that point for Ryzen it's MSI and Asrock... but i agree on the worse one lol

    Havent used Gigabyte in a long time until recently with Intel and so far its been great. AMD boards do seem to be more finicky than Intel though.
